Ball Foundation

The Ball Foundation’s mission is to provide financial support to not-for-profit organizations that sustain the communities in which they live and operate by improving and promoting education, recycling, and community engagement. Ball believes education is vital to social and economic development because it gives members of the community the knowledge and skills they need to achieve employment and economic security. To help keep their communities and business competitive and prosperous, Ball is a strong supporter of STEM education programs at the K-12 and higher education levels. As a STEM Champion, Ball is supporting the CEI-administered Colorado Legacy Schools program, the Colorado version of the National Math and Science Initiative AP model.  This effort is generating high returns in terms of student participation, engagement, and success in rigorous AP course work across 34 high schools, 300 teachers, and over 10,000 students. While this represents a significant increase in traditionally underserved students with access to AP, this number represents a mere 4 percent of Colorado public high school students.
